We stayed two nights and enjoyed the location and views. Our room was simple but comfortable. Try to book a room with a view as it's the view which is one of the great attributes of the hotel. The small garden terrace looks out over Kodaikanal, the hills and the plains and is a great place to have a quiet...

This place is just beside the Coakers Walk, amazing view. Has a small restaurant, food is good, nothing fancy though. Walkable distance from the bus stop and main market. Be prepared to climb some stairs in this property.

We enjoyed the very friendly management and staff, who did everything to make us feel at home.

We stayed for two nights at this excellent and unique place which is a true and very welcome experience of comfort, cleanliness, and style. The view down the valley are simply breathtaking and are on the way from the rooms to the little restaurant or even from few selected rooms. We will definitely come back!

Hospitality: excellent Food: above average, more in good side, but not mouth watering. Can't blame them, looks little understaffed on restaurant side Rooms: classic...
